. >> it's finger pointing time and question time. day after parliament grills rupert murdoch, it's david cameron himself. no break in this london fog. give the prime minister a hurrah. i'm chuck todd. the big, brand new nbc "wall street journal" poll, and the revived gang of six which the white house is seizing on to give new life to the president's push for a big deficit reduction deal. the bipartisan group's proposal is still in outline form. they would reduce the deficit by 3.7 trillion over the next decade, cutting discretionary spending, defense spending, overhauling entitlement programs, rewriting the tax code by lowering rates, getting rid of deductions that overall would generate a trillion dollars in those deficit cuts. the plan got an enthusiastic reception from the white house and senate rank and file. watch. >> we now have a bipartisan group of senators who agree with that balanced approach. we have got the american people who agree with that balanced approach. >> 49 senators came to the room, and you know what, there were no fist fights, there were no -- there was no swearin

at the center of it all, rupert murdoch. nbc's martin fletcher is in london. martin, what's the latest on all this? i understand rupert's coming here. >> he's already there, chuck. he arrived yesterday and it was quite a welcome, by the way. his new york apartment, the paparazzi welcomed him as he got out of his black vehicle with his wife, called out "nice lift, wendy." "nice lift." so the slap heard across the ocean. >> what is it that we can expect parliament is going to do in september when they come back, when it comes to this scandal, sort of where is the investigation now and where does it go forward? >> it seems to be strange that after this dramatic session, emergency session in parliament yesterday they went on holiday, on vacation today until september 5. but that doesn't mean, by any means, the investigation is over or even paused because the key investigation at the moment is by several parliamentary committees, judicial committees, also of course the police are investigating and even daily news corp operations are having their own investigations. there's a lot of investigating g

parliament. the prime minister is calling for two investigations into this. news world is owned by rupert murdoch and says yes they are concerned, they will cooperate with police and do their own investigation. but the extent of this, chuck, is really jaw dropping to the average citizen here in britain and making headlines around the world too. >> put news of the world in perspective. what kind of status does the newspaper have in london say vis-a-vis another newscorp publication here like the "new york post". >> these things always do extremely well. they are the brightly colored tabloids with the crazy headlines that you see at the supermarket. you can't resist them. >> is it more "national enquirer" than "new york post"? >> it's kind of in between because a lot of their headlines are shock but there's truth within them. they get a lot of exclusives. some people who have been imply indicated in the past said look we're not making excuses but i was under enormous pressure to deliver results, which angered some people to even read that because they say hey you know what? there's no expla

in the phone hacking scandal that's rocking rupert murdoch's media empire. just minutes ago, the assistant police commissioner, john yates resigned. this follows the resignation of scotland yard's top official this weekend and the arrest of one of murdoch's closest associates. nbc's stephanie gosk is live in london. stephanie, when you hear about all of these resignations. some in government, some in news corp, it draws the picture of what was apparently a very tight-knit, closed circle between the government and the media in london. does it not? >> reporter: well, yeah, it does, chuck. this story started off about phone hacking and it very quickly has become a story about influence. this has really been an amazing 24 hours here. you have two high-level officials from scotland yard. the chief of police, sir paul stephenson, and his deputy, john yates, resigning. and then on top of that, his organization, his department, arrests a top executive at news corp, a trusted executive, rebekah brooks, who has been a lightning rod in this scandal. now, yates and stephenson have resigned over the co
